Discover how to manufacture higher performance paints and wood coatings

With DOWSIL™ 52 Additive formulators now have the unique capability of fine-tuning a wide array of properties—from slip to scratch resistance and more. Controlling slip while improving scratch and abrasion resistance, and without negatively affecting other important coating benefits, has been difficult to accomplish up to now. With Dows' cost effective silicone additives, you can reduce wear & friction to achieve high performance abrasion resistant coating formulations.

DOWSIL™ 52 Additive can change the way you think about formulating. This unique additive is an ultra-high molecular weight silicone dispersion engineered to use in industrial waterborne wood coatings, wood trim, inks, overprint varnishes and interior/exterior paints. This additive is easily incorporated during let-down and post-addition production stages at very low levels, allowing you to achieve good cost-in-use benefits.

Get better benefits when used alone or with wax emulsions

Testing reveals that DOWSIL™ 52 Additive when used with wax emulsions shows a significant improvement in slip over the samples containing only wax emulsions.
